4 Answers to “What is Intellectual vitality?”

  1. adulation says:

    I would also add that it is an openness and ability to adapt to new ideas in a creative way. Thinking outside the box.The central objective of higher education is to develop the “life of the mind.” A successful educational experience should result in achieving a substantial basis of knowledge and a love of intellectual pursuit. Sustained independent learning in a rapidly evolving career such as engineering depends on highly developed critical thinking, resourcefulness, a sense of confidence in facing unfamiliar concepts and ideas, a well developed set of skills and habits in reading broadly and discovering truth, and especially an insatiable curiosity about new discoveries. A principal educational objective is to build lifelong habits that result in sustained intellectual vitality of this kind.

    For a college essay, I would suggest that you first define with accuracy: intellectual and vitality.Intellectual deals with the brain whereas vitality (from Latin vita, life) deals rather with the physical aspect of things. Yet the brain is physical and is in our body.Intellectual vitality is the vibrance of our faculties of thinking, remembering, speaking, expressing, calculating.So in a few words, it has to do with : Mens sana in corpore sano: a sane mind in a sane body.Yet it also addresses the two parts of the brain! That is very interesting: the left part of the brain is calculating, whereas the right part of the brain is creating. If something happens to our brain from injury, our brain capacities will be damaged, according to the parts of our brain where the injury takes place.Then, I would (but of course it is a humble suggestion) address the consequences of intellectual vitality (or vibrance): what does it do?It helps to create, to make us contribute to our society, and to ourselves of course. It makes us find solution, and have an articulate speech, which allows us for argumentations and progress (teachers often like to hear the word “progress”). It allows for suppleness. That is very important. Since the brain is alive it can adapt to different situations: not only between day and night, or cold and heat (seasons) but lack of money, or sudden wealth, children in a newly wed couples, changing in politics of a nation. Intellectual vitality helps us to survive the stresses of changes.Intellectual vitality is in fact the creator of resiliency, the support of our emotional alchemy, the logical part in us which helps to be oriented.Finally I would suggest some steps toward intellectual vitality: sports because they renew the oxygen in our cells, rest, because it is necessary, challenges and efforts because they exercise the brain which is a muscle. You may also compare with an intellect with no vibrance, no vitality, no suppleness, no oxygen etc…In conclusion, I would point out how important the subject is, how at the core of everything it is. And show some people in history or in philosophy who displayed a great intellectual vitality: for instance Voltaire who would make people shine around him, from his own intelligence, and other people whom I am sure, you know better than me.I hope I helped. You do have a beautiful subject to develop here!
